Just few hours ago I posted about Google’s fist phone, Nexus One. Some credible sources have confirmed that Google will be releasing their first mobile phone, Google Phone, in the first quarter of 2010.
Mario Queiroz, Vice President, Product Management of Google, has given some insights of Google Phone in his blog post. He has clearly mentioned that Google team is working on a mobile device which is now being tested by Google’s employees. However, he didn’t reveal the name of Google Phone and its specifications.
Excerpt from the main post -
We recently came up with the concept of a mobile lab, which is a device that combines innovative hardware from a partner with software that runs on Android to experiment with new mobile features and capabilities, and we shared this device with Google employees across the globe. This means they get to test out a new technology and help improve it.
Unfortunately, because dogfooding is a process exclusively for Google employees, we cannot share specific product details. We hope to share more after our dogfood diet.
The Nexus One which is rumored as Google Phone looks like HTC Hero and HTC Passion (Not released). It also has a trackball at the bottom of front screen to navigate the phone. Few people have managed to gather more information about Google Phone. Let’s take a look at it.
Features of Google Phone

It is being said on many blogs that Google Phone will come out in February 2010. So now we can simply sit back and wait for next year when Google will release the Google Phone. According to some other rumors from Apple world, the company is also working on its next phone i.e. iPhone 4G. It would be interesting to see Apple’s next iPhone and Google Phone competing with each other for the no.1 position in mobile phone market.
